BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: We're getting reports right now from some of these reporters who are at the Baghdad International Airport right now, who have been able to view the two bodies of Saddam's sons, taken there by the U.S. military. Again, some of this information, especially at this point, is quite gruesome and quite graphic.
But what we are learning right now, based on the Associated Press reporters that have been checking in, that both bodies had at least 20 bullets each, and apparently there has been some facial rec -- reconstruction, rather, that has taken place in the bodies of Uday and Qusay.
Also, the U.S. military is telling reports on the scene right there, no evidence of suicide in either son right now.
So, this is what we're getting from the airport west of Baghdad. Much more from our team on the ground, not only at the airport, but in the capital city, in a moment when we get it here.
